It is well

I sang this tuesday...when Matthew Lawrence Leffler attended the funeral of Lawrence Leffler.  Next to my crying father....who had buried two of his brothers in 6 months and is having surgery in 2 weeks to remove his cancer, and his bladder.  I thought of my mother...Vivian Leffler, who is still fighting her breast cancer wearing her scarfs, missing her eye brows and eye lashes but still as pretty as ever.....and I felt this was fitting for all of us, especially me...

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! 

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

I know I complain a lot.  But tonight I am crawling into bed alone.  I just jumped out of the pool and I had a good night.  I cherrish my friendship with Derrick.  I love him.  I appreciate my time with Curtis.  (with a K??  I hear him yelling somewhere out there) and I am proud to be friends with Greg.  I miss some people...but I also know....it is well.  

Sometimes we all need "hope".  Whether christianity brings it to you or something else.  Faith delivers answers and reasons to so many of the situations we are powerless to address.  I was reminded of my faith this week.  The reasons for believing in my faith surround me in my mother ... my father ... and my friends.   

I am who I am because of them. And ... I'd be a fool to disregard my blessings to luck.  An awesome God, with wisdom power and love.
